Default Ohlins DFV Dampening Adjuster Stopped Clicking

Hello, has anyone else experienced the dampening adjuster not clicking on their ohlins dfv? The dampening appears to not be affected, but for some reason the clicking has stopped. Not sure how this could even happen, but I took the adjustment knob off and there;s a threaded hole where there appears to have been a tiny rod that allows the clicking noise/feel.

Anyone else ran into this issue and has a fix?

I should add that the hole is empty and whatever was there is now missing.

The hole on what? The side of the knob?

Isn't the bottom of that adjuster just a little allen key that turns the mechanism inside?

That is correct.

the knob has ridges on the inside. the hole is on the side cylinder assembly that the knob sits on. There is nothing for the ridges to make contact with to make the click sound/feel.

Have you tried moving one of the other adjusters over to see if its just the knob adjuster itself.

i cant remove the other adjusters.

Here are additnal photos.


There is he hole on he side that looks to be missing a part that contacts the ridges (my assumption).

You can see the ridges inside wall of knob thy creates the clicking noise.

Looks like you are missing the little bearing that engages as you turn to make the audible click. You should be able to replace just the adjuster as a 14mm wrench will take it off with no damage to shock. Screw new one in and tighten with wrench just snug, then tighten then adjustment knob all the way, and then back off to desired level.
